Another rectangle full of glass cubicles skyscraper rises

Architecture by Etch-A-Sketch and Lego bricks

Taller than some – wider than others – but basically the same.

Size is everything. Here’s another big bag of money for the city planning committee. .


Taliban target practice – Vertigo sufferers stay away

Giant gorillas come here to fight off the bi-planes

And admire the view of the other side

Of town where other apes look back from their own concrete tree tops.


Stay in tonight – Watch the Towering Inferno.

Or ride the glass elevator up and down

Until you’re sick.

Clean yourself up and go and see the architect.

He lives in a bungalow in Littlehampton.
